The fund's investment objective does not seek to reduce volatility, and as a result, the fund may experience volatility in some market conditions. The fund's historical performance exhibited lower volatility, as measured by beta and standard deviation, over the life of the fund.
Beta is an historic measure of a fund's relative volatility, which is one of the measures of risk. For example, a beta of 0.5 reflects half of the market's volatility versus the index, while a beta of 2.0 would indicate twice the volatility of the index. From this perspective, the fund has a lower risk profile than its benchmark. There is no assurance that a fund will achieve or deliver low volatility results.
Annualized Standard Deviation is a statistical measure of the historical volatility of a mutual fund or portfolio.
